Comments: It is actually pretty funny that I have never looked at this site. But a correction is in order. The first ascent was by Dave Tucholke and Scott Hovet in 1991. I have some old photos of the classic event. Dave and Scott did it ground up, putting in a pin and bolts, without any "top rope beta". I remember reading an article long ago where Greg mentioned the pin and bolts on his "first acsent". Well sorry to break the news. The FA is not his!!!


Location: CO : Access to 14ers behind Alma...

Comments: Oh those access issues....
In the long run, I think access will be sorted out around Alma, and the other 14ers. I guess I do not blame the land owners, there are loads of open shafts around the area, and loads of folk who wander of the trail; however, access must be allowed to those magnificent peaks. It is just a fine balance between them and us.
In the meanwhile, JOIN THE ACCESS FUND! They are our true legal backing on all access issues.

Comments: IMPORTANT NOTICE!!
All climbs in Gilman are on private property, including the access road. Tread gently and practice LNT! Area could close to climbers in the future.
On a side note, The Town of Red Cliff has the best little mountain restaurant in Colorado. Mango's is well worth a visit.

Comments: I have lost all respect for one of my climbing heroes/role models.
If we do not respect closures; future access to other climbing areas may be in jeopardy. Imagine if the legal climbing areas in the National Parks or anywhere else closed to climbing? It is the responsibility of all climbers to obey the rules. It is a shame that "fame and glory" for one climber may harm access for all the rest of us. I am not impressed with Dean.

2. Clay’s Pillar.

Thin, freestanding pillar, to a couple of thin variations at the top. Formed for the first time this season.
WI5.
Note: Clay did not have a name at the time, so it has been fondly nicknamed Clay... more >>

Comments: The real name for this climb is actually "The Secret Stash". It was first climbed by my husband Dave Tucholke about 15 years ago, shortly after he put up "Secret Probation". Unfortunately, when the word got out about "The Stash" the name got mixed up.
